The B5234 is a pleasant drive linking roads in the Needwood Forest area. It is part of a longer cross-country route from Stafford to Burton upon Trent (i.e. A513, B5013, B5234, and B5017). The road was originally unclassified but gained its number in the late 1920s, making it an early example of a recycled number.

The route begins in the attractive village of Abbots Bromley, branching east from the B5014. After climbing out of the village the road passes Bromley Park and Birch Wood before dropping down in to Newborough - note the Red Lion pub. From here it climbs up on to the Needwood plateau and crosses the A515 at a very black, blackspot junction. The road continues to climb before passing Tatenhill airfield on the right. Look out for planes on the flight path crossing the road! Half a mile further the road meets the B5017 roundabout at the New Inn public house, where it ends.
